In recent years, we've witnessed breakthroughs in autonomous transport technologies. From self-driving electric shuttles navigating the Chalmers Campus to autonomous goods deliveries integrated into Chalmers' logistics system.
But what happens when these diverse forms of self-driving transport converge within our urban landscapes? We invite you to be part of the insights and innovations that emerged from the "Samverkande Autonoma Transporter (SAT)" project, an initiative funded by Drive Sweden & Vinnova.
"Samverkande Autonoma Transporter (SAT)", an initiative funded by Drive Sweden & Vinnova, concluded just a few months ago. This project delved deep into the multifaceted world of autonomous transport, examining its impact on:
The canvas for this demo was the Chalmers Johanneberg campus, where the project piloted an autonomous transport system poised to redefine urban mobility.
Watch the presentation that focuses on the effects of automation on transport efficiency. Dive into the study that quantifies freight deliveries and their volumes within the Chalmers campus. The projects engineered an algorithm that orchestrates these deliveries within an autonomous system, optimizing routes while minimizing kilometers driven.
The results offer insights into potential energy savings, the requisite number of robots for efficient parcel distribution, and the intricate dance between passenger and robot demand in shaping autonomous mini-bus routes and schedules.
Our speaker, Ivan Sanchez-Diaz, an Associate Professor at Chalmers University of Technology, brings a wealth of expertise to the table. With a research focus on urban freight and a deep understanding of statistical modeling and optimization, Ivan's work extends across borders, making him a pivotal figure in the transportation industry.
